Cafe Silvestre offers serviceable and inoffensive Mexican food. The items coming out of the kitchen here are indecipherable from the food you might get at a dozen or more similar places in the Salt Lake valley alone. Nothing on any of the plates I tried...More

Excellent chicken enchilada dish and scrumptious vegetarian (vegan) fajita dish with lots of guacamole! Been here many times and the food is always fresh and service is wonderful. Even the chips are homemade. Love this place!

The decor isn't cutting edge. No fine china. Just great home cooking once a month. The staff, particularly Julie, is attentive, fast, friendly, outgoing and quick to make you feel like family.
